Worry not! since we have made the perfect Deadeye guide so you can get all the know-how needed to succeed with him. This guide will be covering all the abilities and unique skills you can use to gain success with him. With that said, here is the Lost Ark ultimate Deadeye guide.
Lost Ark Deadeye Guide
In this guide, we will be taking an in-depth look at what you can expect from playing Deadeye and how to play him better. The main aspect of his kit revolves around the number of attacks he can weave in before he needs to get out. This also means that you will be much more susceptible to damage than other ranged DPS classes. With that said, here are the different aspects of his kit as well as how to play it.
Every class in Lost Ark has a movement pattern unique to themselves. For Deadeye, you get a skill named tumbling that lets you leap a fairly big distance towards a specific direction. This can be used to dodge many PVP and PVE skills but keep in mind that this has an 8 seconds cooldown so use it wisely.
Deadeye’s basic attack is dependent on his equipped weapon. He mainly uses a gun that has a decent attack speed compared to other classes. Most classes only use these attacks for min/maxing their abilities. However, Deadeye’s identity enables him to use three different weapons with really strong auto attacks that he can leverage in-between his abilities to deal massive damage.
Similar to Gunslinger, Deadeye has three different weapons instead of an ability that lets him go past the usual ability count that most classes have. Each of these weapons has a different set of abilities that players can learn and use. While normal classes can only equip 8 abilities, Deadeye can have a total of 16, here is how it works:
Deadeye and Gunslinger: Main Differences
The Deadeye is often considered as the male counterpart to Gunslinger. The Deadeye and the Gunslinger have the same identity and almost the same weapons. What makes them different, however, is the fact that the Deadeye tends to lean a lot more towards the shotgun while the Gunslinger leans more towards the rifle. This also means that the Deadeye is played at a closer range than the Gunslinger.
